Which luxury rug to choose for the stairs in your home
Whatever space they are placed in, luxury carpets add style and elegance to the room. When placed on the stairs, they also bring comfort and safety and help to make the staircase the centre of attention. When furnishing stairs, it is important to make choices that balance aesthetic and functional needs. As well as being beautiful to look at, carpets in this area of the home need to be comfortable and safe to use.
Luxury rugs for stair decoration: durable and stable
The first quality that the ideal luxury carpet for staircase decoration in a multi-storey house should have is durability. A staircase is a transit space, which is crossed daily and several times a day by people living in the house and guests. A rug with a solid structure can adequately withstand the continuous trampling and ensures a long lifespan.
The durability of a luxury carpet depends largely on the material it is made of and the density of the knots. If you want a solid and durable luxury carpet, it is best to opt for a product made from fine wool fibres. These characteristics allow for a very high knot density per square centimetre. The result is a rug that is very durable and on whose surface very elaborate designs can be created.
In order for the carpet to be comfortable and aesthetically pleasing, it is important to consider the thickness of the carpet. The ideal solution for stairs is to use a medium thickness carpet, capable of dampening noise and offering a smooth and stable surface. Carpets with long fibres or fringes should be avoided for this area of the house. Choosing a smooth carpet is especially important if there are elderly people, children or animals in the house, as it increases the risk of falls.
It is equally important that the luxury carpet chosen to decorate the stairs is easy to clean and requires little periodic maintenance. Choosing a carpet with a high knot density also helps with cleaning, as the compactness of the fibres prevents dust and dirt from getting inside the carpet. Simply vacuuming the stairs two or three times a week will keep the carpet nice and clean. In contrast to carpets for living areas, it is not a priority to choose a stain-resistant carpet. The risk of spilled food or liquids, such as water or drinks, is minimal. This means that light-coloured solid-coloured carpets can also be chosen for stairs, which are more difficult to integrate in a living room or hall of a house with several people.
The best colours and graphic patterns for luxury stair carpets
Sufficient attention must be paid to the choice of pattern and graphics for the luxury stair carpet. First of all, it is necessary to consider how the staircase blends in with the other rooms in the house. A staircase that opens in the middle of the room will need an important carpet, with graphics that will immediately catch the eye. If, on the other hand, the carpet is to decorate a staircase that is located to one side of the room, it is important to create a colour balance with the carpets chosen for the living room or hall.
If you are planning to choose a geometric pattern for your staircase carpet, you need to be a little more careful. The different sizes of the steps can create unsightly misalignments that can detract from the beauty of the carpet. Before making the final decision, it is a good idea to evaluate the performance of different designs, for example alternating patterns with stripes, circles of various sizes or oblique lines.
As a general guideline, the points to start from when choosing the best luxury stair carpet design are the position of the space to be decorated in relation to the rest of the house and the amount of light reaching the stairs. For staircases that are in a dimly lit area, as well as providing more light points, it can be useful to choose contemporary art rugs in light colours or bright shades. On the other hand, a large staircase that receives a lot of natural light can be made to stand out with very colourful and graphic carpets, such as Persian inspired carpets.
